Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-2500) Automated cluster account provisioning for gateway users
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2017 19:32:01 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on AIRAVATA-2500:

Commit c102df7f7201ca1e4af1466319f6799e7bd5d79d in airavata's branch refs/heads/AIRAVATA-2500
from [~marcuschristie]
[;h=c102df7 ]

AIRAVATA-2500 Added additional info field for SSH Account Provisioners

This field is meant to contain additional information or instructions to
the user. First use case is to give user information on how to obtain a
cluster account when the SSHAccountProvisioner is not able to
automatically create the account.

> The initial use case for this system is the IU Cybergateway.  We need the following capabilities:
> * query for whether a user has an account
> ** for IU Cybergateway the user cluster access is determined by querying LDAP
> * add an SSH public key for the user to authenticate (actually Airavata to authenticate
on behalf of the user) to the cluster
> ** for IU Cybergateway the key is added to LDAP
> Once the user has a cluster account and their SSH key has been added the following additional
things need to be done
> * test that Airavata can authenticate to the cluster on the users behalf
> * add a scratch location that Airavata will use for the user on the cluster
> Eric Coulter has developed a prototype LDAP client that can query for a user's account
and deposit an SSH key in LDAP: (note:
this link is only accessible via IU credentials).
